Rongjin Gorgeous Time in Taipei

During our trip to Taipei, we explored the historic Rongjin Gorgeous Time in Taipei. A site deeply rooted in Taiwan‘s complex history.

Originally serving as the Official Dormitories of Taihoku Prison during the Qing Dynasty, this area witnessed significant events, from housing political prisoners during Japanese rule to becoming a community hub for immigrants and public servants.

Today this place has been transformed and is full of Japanese bars and restaurants! We strongly recommend to visit this place, and it’s not very far from Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

As we made our way to Rongjin Gorgeous Time Park after visiting Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the bustling streets of Taipei transformed into a more tranquil landscape.

The park, a lesser-known destination among tourists, felt like an exclusive retreat in the heart of the city.

Indeed, Rongjin Gorgeous Time is kind of the newest trendy place in Taipei, which is not very visited by tourists yet!
